Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest NHS teaching trusts in the country. It provides a wide range of general and specialist clinical services and is a base for medical education, training and research.

The Trust comprises four hospitals - the John Radcliffe Hospital, Churchill Hospital and Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Headington and the Horton General Hospital in Banbury.

Our values, standards and behaviours define the quality of clinical care we offer and the professional relationships we make with our patients, colleagues and the wider community. We call this Delivering Compassionate Excellence and its focus is on our values of compassion, respect, learning, delivery, improvement and excellence. These values put patients at the heart of what we do and underpin the quality healthcare we would like for ourselves or a member of our family. Watch how we set out to deliver compassionate excellence via the OUH YouTube channel.


Many of our recruitment programmes use Value Based Interviewing to identify those who have the skills we seek, who share our values and who are able to deliver compassionate excellence from the outset. We know that this makes a significant difference to your job satisfaction and above all the outcomes and experience of our patients and their families.

For more information about our Values and Value Based Interviewing please visit www.ouh.nhs.uk/about/vision-and-values


As a result of career progression and promotion within the ward we are looking for motivated and enthusiastic Band 5 nurses to join our team on the Renal Ward. 

 You will be responsible for assessing, planning, delivering and evaluating nursing care for patients with a range of renal conditions, both acute and chronic.  

 Previous experiences of working in a renal or other acute medical setting are desirable but not essential as full training will be given to support the successful candidate to excel in this speciality.  In particular, we welcome applications from newly qualified nurses and our Clinical Educator and Team Leaders will fully support your development as Foundation Nurses through the Foundation Programme.

 For those that wish to progress in their career we offer a Post Graduate Renal course (available after 1  year depending on funding) and internal rotation to the haemodialysis team.

 You must possess good interpersonal communication skills, and have the ability to function as part of the multidisciplinary team, providing high standards of patient care at all times.

 Shifts are 11.5hours and you will be expected to work a combination of days, nights and weekends.

 If you would like to be part of our team here at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, where our values, standards and behaviours define the quality of clinical care we offer, we want to hear from you.
